as seen on . better homes and gardens

25 Aug


it’s kind of impossible to come up with the right words in situations like this — it’s definitely another of those dream [that i never knew i even had] come true moments. these are photos of the halloween issue of better homes and gardens magazine. inside, you will find a 12-page feature of halloween costumes i designed and photographed.

i don’t really know what to say beyond that. other than this is so incredibly cool. and thank you. thank you to the people at bhg. thanks to mark for putting up with the massive mess that went into creating this, and every other costume, party, and random craft i’ve ever decided needs to be done right now. and thank you to all of you. who come here to check out this little blog, and who pin and share the images i take and crafts i make, and who hire me to photograph your families. we have a pretty good thing going here in pinksugarland, and lots of that is thanks to you :)

this is totally reading like an acceptance speech, but whatever. i’m happy, and i’m thankful.

    Oh, Andrea! If anyone deserves to have her work and talent showcased in this way, it is you, my friend. I hope they have copies in Japan so I can pick one up. :)
